We had a very enjoyable evening recently in The Old Butchers. The food was excellent with a very relaxed atmosphere and friendly service. The menu offered just about the right variety of choices to suit most tastes. Even the wine list offered labels I know and enjoy. We will definitely return. Brian T.

We ate in here on Good Friday, we enjoyed the charcuterie selection, followed by some tapas. The food was really good and the service was excellent. Our waitress was very friendly and knowledgable and gave good advice. The mussels are highly recommended.

Really poor and disappointing lunch today...not been to Old Butchers for several years but our memory of it was good. Greasy and gristly posh pie - not recommended. Gnocchi burnt and poor value for main course (about 10 pieces of pasta????). Coffees were cold. Bill was £100 for 3 people but came away annoyed about presentation, quality of food and... More

"We dined at the old Butchers on Saturday evening during out stay in Stow, have to say that the restaurant did not live up to our expectations. On entering the restaurant and being shown to our table we weren't asked if we wanted our coats taken and subsequently had no where to put them, we were shown to our table... More

This was our first visit to the Old Butchers in Stow - roasted shellfish main course was suggested and lived up to my expectations as did the calves liver - absolutely delicious and beautifully presented. Service was friendly. Overall a great evening and we will be back.

We happened upon this restaurant and were delighted with fresh seafood to start and beautiful fish mains. The attention to detail here was obvious from the start with iced glasses for our peach prose co and crispy edged warm home made bread... Try it they clearly care about every single dish and drink they out on the table can not... More

Three of us dropped in here for a late Sunday lunch: Calves liver; Cod; Moules. All were delicious! The Moules in particular were fat and tasty. Glasses of Merlot and Pinotage were also good. The bill came out at £20/head. We would return!

After initially being slightly unsure about the menu - we were recommended the restaurant by our B&B - we plumped for selection of charcuteries which were fab! And then I had Rabbit pie (for the first time) on recommendation and it was fab! Nice choice of wine and beer. Pleasantly pleased with the price, we had a great meal. Staff... More
